Re: Max. shed height?

Does this mean the part of the shed that is over 2.5m high mustn't be within the 2m, or does it mean that no part of the shed can be within 2m of the boundary? Hi John P, My understanding is that if a shed is more than 2.5m high, at any point, then no part of the shed may be less than 2m from the b...

Re: Misrepresentation

Just come back to this thread. Fingers crossed all is still quiet on the western front. Imo one almost gets a mild form of PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) after an episode battling neighbours - even if all is resolved. I'd just "give it time" and your frazzled nerve ends will settle back down.

Re: Gigantic bamboo on property boundaries

Problem is when those "few" instances occur they cause a lot of distress Do suggest what anyone is supposed to do about Treesurgeons who leave a huge mess on the neighbours spotless garden Or what anyone is supposed to do when a neighbour constantly nibbles away at every inch of anything that cross...

Re: Gigantic bamboo on property boundaries

Surely not "flytipping" - just a case of putting THEIR property back onto THEIR land.

Re: Private access road - resurfacing a section.

I think so, it's tarmac so not part of my driveway but it lies within my boundary (see photo) it is part of the shared private ROW and must be kept clear, which it would, only difference would be the surface. Correct its not part of my land, but I am finding out if its possible for me to block pave...

The tarmac part I wish to block pave over isn't my land, I wish to incorporate it into my driveway so it runs in a straight line but I don't own the tarmac part.
There's your answer then - it's not yours and so you can't. End of....

Re: Private access road - resurfacing a section.

Information missing is your title plan showing the yellow hatched area. Does that include all or any part of the tarmac covered land you now wish to resurface? That's what I am wondering - ie is that bit of land shown on the Land Registry's Title Plan for the house or no. If it is on the Title Plan...

Re: Parking on ROW - Private road

Admits I'd go ahead and buy the bigger car I'd planned on in your position - they'd no longer have the "as your car is a smaller one" excuse and that may (just....) stop them. If it doesn't - then on their head be it if you clipped their car accidentally.

Re: Neighbour's planned extension overhangs into our yard

I would think it's best to send them a letter (Recorded Delivery) fast - in which you lay down what amounts to "necessary maintenance" and that their work isnt covered by that. You will therefore be refusing access to your garden for any "improvement" work on their house. Take photos of the current ...

Re: Neighbour's planned extension overhangs into our yard

BTW - Neighbours (and their tradespeople) are only allowed to legally force access to someone else's land (under that Access to Neighbouring Properties Act) for "necessary maintenance". Replacing the garage roof with one that is the same and being done because the roof has "had it" would be "necessa...

Re: Interesting story about the cost of a boundary dispute

I did feel sorry for the owners of that parking place. Whilst there is enough room to park one car - what about if they (or future owners of their house) want to pick two there or a darn great van? Looks like the other guy is just being plain devious and it would have been wise, in hindsight, to "se...

Re: Misrepresentation

Have you found out what the "next move" is yet?

With any luck their solicitor has taken a look at the situation on the ground and told them "Don't be so daft. Leave things be".

Re: Misrepresentation

Well it looks as if they havent been able to steal the land or get "prescriptive easement" over the land. So - if I'm reading this right - you have everything that's yours now with you - ie all your land and they don't have any rights over it. I can't see that there is anything else they can do to y...

Re: Neighbour insistant on right of way

I can understand the logic of why poster is thinking of "parish councils" to adjudicate in these cases. But there is one huge snag to that - and that is that one or more of the members of this might be biased in favour of one of the households concerned. This is particularly true if it's a small pla...

Re: Neighbour insistant on right of way

Surprised you arent watering your garden - a LOT - with a hosepipe. Coincidentally at the time trespassers are trying to pass through. They surely dont want a drenching at regular intervals. I soon found the benefits of having had a hosepipe put in here when I had problems with my neighbours trespas...
